Now, Hamas 'foreign minister
' and money smuggler
Mahmoud al-Zahar, who claims to be an expert at cutting throats
, can really say he's homeless. During the night, the IDF obliterated his home
An Israeli airstrike on Tuesday night targeted the home of senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar, security officials told the AFP news agency.
There was no one in the house, in western Gaza City, at the time the airstrike hit, the security sources and witnesses said.
Witnesses said at least two missiles hit Zahar's home, flattening the
four-storey building and causing damage to the adjacent mosque and
several neighboring houses.
Al-Zahar recently issued a direct threat against Israel, declaring that Hamas has rockets that can hit any city in Israel.
He further said that during Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012,
Hamas held a “dry run” in attacking Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv and
Jerusalem. Hamas is known to have test-fired long-range M-175 rockets
that can reach Tel Aviv and even beyond that when fired from Gaza.
It is believed that Al-Zahar and the other senior leaders of Hamas are hiding in underground bunkers.
Cowards - leaving civilians to absorb the consequences of his hubris. Here's hoping that their underground bunker collapses. (I'm sure much of Gaza would agree with that sentiment).
